Hot summer days are good times to try to get caught up with all the good books about food that are coming out. Here’s one from someone I knew when she was a student in our department at NYU.
She was a great writer even then. Now she has kids…
Katie Morford, The Best Lunchbox Ever: Ideas and Recipes for School Lunches Kids Will Love, Chronicle Books, 2013.
I did a blurb for it, of course:
The Best Lunchbox Ever is a terrific gift to anyone who has to pack a lunch for a kid, and wants that lunch to be healthy—and eaten. Katie Morford has dozens of interesting and sometimes surprising suggestions for easy, delicious, and nutritious lunch items that kids will enjoy—if parents don’t get to them first. I wish I’d had this book when my kids were in school.
Enjoy and use!
